Tutorial Help

In this tutorial I had installed Windows 7. I did update to Windows 10 through tool Windows Media Creation Tool I played a little with Windows 10 and decided to return to Windows 7. Although Windows 7 had installed some software and a text document on the desktop, they remained in Windows 10

It is very important to know that if you installed new software in Windows 10 or created documents and you have left on your desktop after you return to Windows 7, software installed in Windows 10 and documents, you will not find after return Windows 7.

Windows Media Creation Tool

When the upgrade, Windows Media Creation Tool makes a backup of Windows 7 (in my case), an image of the operating system that contains all software and documents were in the operating system and will port Windows 10. Well, if downgrade this does not happen again.

after downgrade

Changes to Windows 10, software installed or newly created documents will not be ported back to Windows 7 because when upgrading.
Windows 7 not contain those changes, software or documents. Basically the downgrade operating system just returns to the state where it was before the upgrade.
Although the tutorial I returned from Windows to Windows 10 7 same method is used if you want to switch from Windows to Windows 10 8 or 10 Windows Windows 8.1
